Question about Dell Computers & Internet
Can't access internet with new computer
Make sure your Network Adapter is properly working. Right click your My Computer and choose Manage; the Computer Management window will open. Click Device Manager from the left panel and expand the Network adapters on the right by clicking the "+" sign. It will show you your networking device. There could be a yellow exclamation point and it just needs to be updated. Right click it and choose update and follow the wizard. You should have with you your Dell's installation cd to update the driver. If, however, there is no yellow exclamation point, right click on it and click properties. Make sure it is enabled on the "Device usage field.
Now, if all is well and your internet cable is properly plugged in, go to Control Panel >> Network Connections. Right click your LAN connection and click Properties. One the General tab, click on the Internet Protocol TCP/IP and click Properties. Make sure it is set to obtain IP address and DNS automatically. Click OK. Right click your LAN connection again and choose Repair. Make sure the status is showing "connected".
If the above has been done to no avail, please let me know.
